is the opposite of what it does. it ends up creating the environment where we have less ability to get ahead, it creates dependency, it plays crony capitalism, which hurts career entrepreneurship and opportunity. all the government and what it says it does, helps the poor, make sure that markets on the right direction, they actually do the opposite. they are short-term oriented to the next election. they have their own agenda. they don't respond to the marketplace the way a business should. they have their own agenda in terms of those special interest groups and the like. the bigger they get from them were hardly due to the economy and the less chance that they have to improve your lot in life, as abraham lincoln put it. >> host: is reality a part of capitalism to smack it is the basis of capitalism. contrary to the hollywood cartoon character of business people rubbing their hands in glee at the misery of others, even if you lust for money, you don't get it unless you provide products or services that somebody else wants. so without us even realizing it, it enhances humanity. you have to cr
about emotional, financial, social, spiritual and environments, occupational and intellectual as well as physical aspects of ourselves. we call this the eighth dimension model of wellness. this is how we conceptualize wellness. we care about physical wellness because people are physically sick and many are dying 25 years before the general population. we care about intellectual wellness because we need healthy minds and healthy bodies in the knowledge to reclaim and manage our lives in recovery. we care about social wellness because the conditions bring about social isolation, leading people further from their healthy recovery. we care about spiritual wellness because disease, all these diseases, robs us of our sense of meaning, purpose and spiritual connectedness. we care about mental and emotional wellness week as people need clear, wide lines in order to live productive lives and pursue recovery. we care about environmental wellness because it's impossible for people to feel better or well in places or spaces where there is overcrowding, stress, pollution and other toxins in both p

, by getting a much more sensible regulatory environment and, yes, repealing obamacare. these are the burdens that we've got to remove. >> moderator: now time for our closing statements, and by the order of the coin toss, congressman cantor goes first. cantor: you know, i think what you've seen tonight is certainly a robust discussion, and, um, a debate though, frankly, that has been peppered, unfortunately, with what is wrong with politics today. and that is just a rash of personal attacks, indirect attacks on my family, and as we saw repetitive disregard for honesty and truth. and the thing is, none of these negative attacks do anything to create a job, do anything to educate a child or do anything to bring down the deficit. but attempts at attacks and character assassination the way that mr. powell's been about tonight, frankly, make it a lot harder to solve problems, to compromise, to sit down and actually get something done. but i think that, mr. powell, you underestimate the decency of the voters of the seventh district, and i've had the privilege of representing this district for almos

you could even say we're a little bit ambitious. right. you come in to the environment, many people came in without a job. they were volunteers and want to get a job. some people -- they want to get noticed by the right people. and they, you know, and you have people who have been hired who want maybe more responsibility. right than they probably traditional in their job. and the department heads who are racing against each other maybe to get a little more budget than the other and get a little more turf than the others and you might expect. you have the thing going on it's a chaotic time. you need to get control of this. because, you know, in this environment, where there no sort of norms, it's like building -- it is like building a village from scratch. everybody comes to a place with no rules or enormous, no structures, right, it's like the wild west. and not everybody, you know, some people who, you know, have their own tactics for getting their own way. right. sometimes even good people lose control of the inner jerks. it's a problem early in the campaign. we all have them. com

cares very much about the environment, about the small nations and the commonwealth that face particular challenges like the irelands nation's. so many things that she has contributed to that the british people feel indebted to her for having done. and as i have been going around the country talking to groups i detected a kind of list fullness almost on the part of people. why don't we have somebody like this can unify the country, to the light above politics. she performs a very valuable service. >> host: "elizabeth the queen" is the name of the book. sally bedell smith is the author. thank you for joining us on book tv today. thank you all for being here, and that is going to close out our coverage of the 2012 national book festival. thanks for being with us. this will all read-share overnight on book tv on c-span2. >> that even part of the 2011 national book festival here in washington, d.c. to find out more visit loc.gov/book fest. >> a wonderful introduction. introd authors love great introduction and great reviews. r th for those of you who go ontoos amazon and click four or five,
resolution. we have too many photo ops and too many signs -- big supporters of the environment -- [inaudible] thousands of faces, [inaudible] for example, a tomb that is a holy site for jews. jews are supposed to go there whenever they want to pray, but we cannot go there. the jews cannot go there and pray at the tomb. i don't want to have another call or ceremony at the white house, i want to get to the point where we can -- until we get to that point -- we need to manage the conflict. i would like to sum up until you that the book is very straight. i did not hide in some of my colleagues told me, danny dannon, you are making a mistake because if you write something now and you are relatively young, what will happen in a few years? people will tell you that you did this or that on page 182, and now, what are you doing? i told them i believe in the principles and i am able to protect them, and that one day if i see the was wrong, i will come and say so. but so far, what we have seen is that the public of israel and the american people are understanding. it is not about what israel is willing
and education. and also making environment where it's easy enough for businesses to hire people and employ people and kind of stay out of everybody's way. >> host: how is it doing on those? >> caller: i don't think it's doing really well when the minimum wage is sitting at $10 an hour in some states. it's not there yet but it's getting very quick. and that isn't enough to employ people some people like myself, a small businessman, it's hard for me to employ more people when i'm having to pay so much for everything. the price of everything is going up, the price of fuel, the price of electricity, the price of food, the price of everything is going up right now. so i don't think the government is doing a good job. >> host: thanks in washington. "the wall street journal" this morning another comparison between the two candidates is and so much on the role of government, the definition of patriotism. president barack obama says he wants the new economic patriotism that mitt romney calls the presidential campaign a battle for the soul of america. the candidates are not only racing to win an ele
many signs. the austrian accord, big supporters of the environment. think about the amount of paper that was wasted when we drafted the oslo accord. thousands of papers. but today we come and we speak with the palestinian leadership about the oslo accord, well, it is written, so what? for example, [inaudible] a holy site for jews in an in accordance to the oslo accord were supposed to go there whenever we want pray, that we cannot go there. it's not safe for jews, cannot go to date and pray at the tomb of jordan. so it is written in the oslo accords. i don't want to another accord and another ceremony at the white house. i don't believe in it. i want to get to the point where there will be real peace with real partner, and still we'll get to that point we will have to manage the conflict. i want to sum up and tell you that the book is very straight. i didn't hide, and some of my colleagues in the parliament told me, you're making a mistake because if you buy something out in the book and you are young relatively, what will happen in two years? people will go back and tell you, your
as president today getting things done with the very polarized environment? [applause] >> terrific question. it is hard to answer. part of the answer is the following. lyndon johnson became majority leader of the senate in 1955, the senate was and had been for decades -- let's put it that way -- taught to believe the same dysfunctional mess that it is today. bills couldn't get past because the power that confronted a president wasn't a party to this. wasn't republicans against democrats. it was interparty division. half of the democrats in the senate where southern democrats who were as conservative as can be imagined on civil rights and everything else and in that year, 1955, 16 great standing committees, the republicans were chairman of nine of them and senior committee post was stacked with them and subcommittees were headed buy them. they had stopped every president. no one seems to realize this but in the 25 years after the supreme court, when southern conservatives realized they and the midwestern republicans were on the same side and could control congress know president, franco low
own internal problems to try to confront a more hostile external environment. continuing to in gauge, finding areas of cooperation and areas like energy keep our markets open the don't create a more hostile external environment. important we keep balance in the region. there is a fine line between balance and provocation that we want to stay on the side of balance and a constructive environment. >> dr. kissinger. i was surprised to hear you say comments by both candidates. the term extremely deplorable language about china. you have endorsed mitt romney. have you had that conversation with him? have you said i find your comments extremely deplorable? >> i have seen the appetite of two candidates competing with each other on how to deal with a strategy. both have achieved as applied to china. >> and trade. >> and it may be in china -- i am positive of the fact that appealing to china had taken part of the view on china policy that is not a secret. doesn't affect my basic intuition. >> mitt romney has talked about labeling china a currency manipulator. would that be productive? >> mayb
remember going to bed hungry many nights. i was raised in an abusive environment. if i told you how i accomplished all that i did, you would ask me how. many had a determination. the reason i was able to accomplish that is because i have the blessing of being born into the greatest country in the world. and you can all applaud him not. [applause] >> the greatest country in the world, no matter where you are born, how were you are, where you come from, who your mother was, who your dad was, that you are still able to achieve the what you achieved. the reason that is is because of the people who came before me who bought and gave us that right. i think we are losing sight of that right now. i have never been as afraid for our country as i am right now. i am very afraid for our country right now. we have to hold on to the greatness that we have. let me give you a little background here. you have to know when you are a winner. while that sounds like it's self-evident, it is not. when i was with "seal team six", i thought i was winning. you know, member of an elite counterterrorism unit, y
know is a competitive environment. you have to put in some money to get some money. we were among the other competitors as well as you can see from the top. there is another facebook site that uses a bit more aggressive marketing i would say. and we were not prepared to do that at this point. the bottom picture shows a baby when it comes to misleading marketing i draw the line with babies. i have a nine month old, so i wouldn't do that. we had competition, and that's why we think we have low traffic and there are other sites available. so, some lessons we can learn. primary findings from the study are coming in its preliminary study so we would like to follow it with additional more analytical studies this is more of a descriptive study is that it's possible with little experience, academics not necessarily we are not computer scientists, so it was possible with very little experience to post it on a social media site still available again, and this form of the media really did go to global patients worldwide. some lessons we can learn from this particular study are that of course
nights before the age of 7 at which time i was adopted and raised in an abusive environment, beaten by a step that. if i gave you all that, and told you i would one day accomplish all the things i had accomplished you would say how? some people can say it is because you had a lot of determination. maybe because you had a big heart or a lot of drive. you could have all those things and still never accomplish what i have accomplished without one thing -- the reason i was able to accomplish that is i had the blessing of being born into the greatest country in the world. you can all applaud on that. greatest country in the world where no matter where you are born or how poor you are or where you come from or to your mom or dad was, you are still able to achieve what you achieve. the reason that is is because of the people who came before me who fought and gave us that right and we are losing sight of that right now. i have never been afraid for our country as i am right now. i am afraid for our country right now, but we have got to hold on to the greatness we have and i will get into ho
as there were previously and so when you get into that environment it's a lot easier for campaigns to individualize where they can get benefits by focusing on turnout or registration of their supporters as opposed to merely trying to persuade. this year 6% from a percent or 9% that are persuadable obviously those campaigns are going to focus on them but we have a far better science now and the understanding what motivates people to vote and a lot of that informed by behavioral psychology research and so the science of mobilization and turnout has got much better. the science persuasion still, it's still pretty vague and so i do think that there has been a sort of reinvesting in a lot of localization techniques in part because we have learned in the last decade how they work so now you have these two separate things. you know once you get to somebody what you can and do to increase the likelihood of voting by 2% and now we have better targeting technics through data to figure out who you talk to them about what. i don't think of it is necessarily message or targeting that good campa
you get into that environment is a lot easier for them to visualize where they can get benefits by focusing on the voter registration as opposed to trying to persuade this small slice. i don't know if it is six per cent or 9% of our purse wadable but you're going to focus on them but we have a far better science now in understanding and a lot of is informed by the psychology research and so the science of the mobilization turnout has gotten much better it's still pretty vague and it's reinvesting in a lot of mobilization techniques because we have learned in the last decade how they work as we have two separate things you sort of know once you get somebody to implicate voting by the two per cent and now we have better targeting techniques to figure out who you talk to and about what what message or targeting but the big campaigns do targeting and analysis on the front end of the allows them to understand far more precise clean way for their turn of targets and they don't need to talk to until who the persuasion targets are and if you are narrowing your universe the people you're
as there were previously. and when you get in to that environment, it's a lot easier for campaigns to visualize where they can get benefits by focusing on turnout or registration for the porters as opposed to merely trying to persuade the small. i don't know if it's 6, 8, 9%. obviously campaigns are going to focus on them. we we have a far better science now in understanding what mate voted people to vote and a lot of it informed by behavioral psychological research. the science persuasion still pretty vague, and so i do think that there's been a sort of reinvesting in a lot of mobilization techniques in part because we have learned in the last decade how they work. you have the two separate thing. you know when you get to somebody what you can do by increase their likelihood of voting by 2% with i have better techniques to figure out who you talk to about what. i don't think about it necessarily as message or targets. good campaigns do targeting and analysis on the front thanked allows them to understand in a far more precise clean way for who are the turnout targets who they don't need to tal
to seem unless the debate set the presidential election. it's clear the spt heading toward a environment he has a advantage. romney is going to be exceptional. >> tune in. >> fiewn in and watch. let watch. >> i'm excited. >> talk about in next week in class. >> would you taunt the cross road different and you engage in more localized races congressional and senate how you choose your priorities since so you have a broader scope. >> yeah. that's a good question. we're focused on the presidential election and goal to beat president obama and elect a new president. we are heavily invested in the senate and house race. thing a way about the -- [inaudible] i don't think priority u.s.a. for example -- restore future exclusively dedicated. we're focused on all of the senate races or where you're going do see a lot more of the advertising early your on in the senate races, the bigger the office, the more people pay attention. the we'll be engaged in a number of house races probably a little bit later as we get closer. >> yeah. that's the other thing. the cross roads place outside role in the sen
this past week. in this highly polarized environment both campaigns have strategically been appealing to their respective political bases. what is unusual about this election cycle is most voters have picked sides early and lead to our polling right after the convention. looks like the final weekend of the campaign. they tell us they are firmly committed to their candidate and the number of undecided voters has been surprisingly very low. single digits. it is not about persuasion. it is about mobilization. both of the conventions were like that. in the next few weeks we will see a lot about mobilizing folks to come out particularly because of early voting which has started in so many states. the middle is shrinking as far as these campaigns are concerned. we will talk about how there is still a middle to america. once you get beyond the campaign labels but clearly those are what drive strategy in campaigns and the electoral politics. if you look at the campaign ads, in new york we are not -- we don't get a lot of ads. i have seen one of you in virginia are seeing and if you are in any
the political environment and the foreign policy concerns that relate to north korea. as a general rule, u.s. north korea policy follows a very similar and repetitive pattern. the provocations by the regime, missile launches, underground nuclear test or the occasional thinking of south korean boat. they are followed by threats of sanction by the international community. a lot of hand wringing. as with the child, the province of better behavior whereupon the international community comes back and provides more aid to the regime. in many respects continuing to prop up the regime. and of course, the aid that is received almost never reaches the people for whom it is delawares end. it is sei phoned off by the military. sold on the black market for hard current sei. this races several questions. i want to plant a few seeds we can come back to. four particular areas i think are worth discussing and thinking about. one is the effect, if any, of sanctions monetary sanctions on a regime like this? well, we all remember what happened about six or seven years ago when the united states froze 25 milli
of serendipitily when the organism in the environment changes. an example of this is feathers. we think feathers evolved to keep their owners warm basically. over time some creatures evolved feathers decided to adopt crazy new lifestyle of flying and ones had new feathers were better at it than ones that didn't have feathers. at one point evolution starts to skult the feathers to make them aerodynamic. so they're still just keeping them warm. flying birds have slightly asymmetrical feathers which gives them better aerodynamics essentially. you can see the shaping of after the change. the idea in accepttationy trait designed for one thing gets designed for something else. in the technology in it history of creative arts, in any field where people try to feel inventive and imaginative, that practice of taking an idea from one place and moving it over and kind of applying it in a new context is incredibly powerful. there's a great story actually not in where good ideas come from that kind of came to me after words, from apple, the most inno site tiff company in the world right now. when apple was t
a faster and may be reinvent the rules and that is because we are in a very different work environment where technology is making jobs out a bit faster and spinning off new jobs each of the jobs require education. so i think that if we are going to -- america is a huge advantage in this world because it's -- i think the world is going to be divided going forward between the high imagination and the countries and low imagination and the countries and we have the highest imagination enabling country in the world. if you have the spark of an idea you have a delta to design this for you you skip over to the manufacturer for this and amazon will to the fulfillment and delivery and gift wrap for christmas. craigslist will get you an accountant and your logo. they are all commodities except this and there is no country that does this better. the problem with this though is the days where ford will move to the town's 25,000 person factory are over. the factory is now 2500 people may be a lot of robots. you know the old joke it will be to employees, a man and a dog the man is there to feed the
sure that we provide an environment where we can create good-paying jobs and keep them right here in the state of nevada. we've got work for small businesses, making sure that we pass the hire act which my opponent voted against, the small business jobs act which my opponent voted against, making sure we make nevada the clean energy jobs capital of the united states which my opponent voted against investment for renewable energy. >> moderator: thank you. our next question comes from ray hagar, and it's directed to senator heller. >> as you know, nevada's a leader in national unemployment, and in 2010 during a speech in elko, you questioned the wisdom of extending unemployment benefits. you asked, quote: is the government now creating hobos, unquote? as nevada's unemployment crisis continues, are you calling nevada's unemployed hobos? [laughter] heller: or this is the most difficult part of an election, that's proving something you didn't do or something you didn't say. and in this case, this is something i did not do and something i did not say. i did not say that. what i do want
become aware because i write about the environment that the stimulus included $90 billion for clean energy leveraging another $100 billion in private capital. it seems like tycos. the united states was spending billion a year on clean energy before the recovery act. in 1999 washington completely knocked president clinton's high in the sky plan to spend $6 billion for clean energy. was dead on arrival. obama got $90 billion in his first months before his staff could find bathrooms in the west wing. just ridiculous. the stimulus was pouring unprecedented rivers of cash and renewables and energy efficiency and every imaginable form, advanced biofuel and electric vehicles and cutting edge research, smarter grid, cleaner coal, factories to make that green stuff in the united states. it was by far the biggest energy bill in history. kind of got me curious what else was in the stimulus everyone was laughing about. i did some investigative reporting with a google search. i learned that the stimulus had also launched race to the top which was a real moment. have you heard of race to the top?
into that environment, excellent issue for campaigns to visualize where they can get benefits by focusing on turnout or registration of their supporters as opposed to merely trying to persuade them. now, this you i don't know if it's 8% are not present that are persuadable. the campaigns will focus on them. but we have a far better science now in understanding what motivates people to vote. and a lot of it -- the science of mobilization turnout has gotten much better. the science of persuasion, it's still pretty vague. and so i do think that there's been a sort of reinvesting in a lot of mobilization techniques in part because of what we've learned in the last decade. sunday of these two separate things. you certainly know what you give to somebody what you can do to increase their likelihood of voting. and now have better targeting techniques through data to forget who you talk to and about what. and so i don't think of it as necessarily message or targeting, but good campaigns do targeting and analysis on the front and that allows them to understand in a far more precise clean way for their turnou
. i think that's really the answer to jobs, because in a zero corporate tax rate environment if the private sector doesn't create tens of millions of jobs, i don't know what it's going to take to create tens of millions of jobs. it's the answer when it comes to exports bleeding out all existing federal tax out of all goods and services. it's the answer to china. i see manufacturing jobs flocking back to the united states given a zero corporate tax rate environment. are you hearing these things from these other two guys? no, not even remotely close. they're arguing over who's going to spend more money on medicare. romney says he wants to balance the federal budget, but that he wants to increase spending for the military. well, it doesn't add up. and if we want to believe in the things that these guys are saying, then i guess we belief in the easter bunny and santa claus and by extension the tooth fairy and, steve, i don't think thai coming. >> host: gary johnson is with us, and want to remind viewers we'll a add a fourth line this morning for third-party voters, 202-585-3883 i
see the problems of climate change, the environment, immigration that everyone is saying, what is that guy smoking? i see some potential for common ground. >> they think it is just as much to do with curry each because what you're talking about is people are afraid across the party line to go on a direction and because the voters are going to be upset and therefore they may not get reelected. what looks to remain objective and you go to office to get reelected, you're vulnerable. you cannot make a move anymore. i mean, we talk about the courage, you talk about senator mccain who was in vietnam and he was going through unbelievable torture. he risked his life going over there. every time coming in now, one of our brave men and women before iraq or afghanistan, they risk their life. they could risk their life for our country. why would the politicians be a little their office for mac in the right decision? [applause] that's where the problem lies because the president in his speeches to other changes to do it. and that, every police officer, every firefighter, every single family
kept a good thing going for 70 years in that part of the world. it's been that environment in which these tremendous economic transformations of one nation state after another can take place. we welcome that and we think that is a good thing. we want to keep going with that. that's what it's all about. on both of those questions all i can say is watch. >> one more question, how about in the back with the hand raised. i'm trying to be equal opportunity in this audience. >> tom referred for the malaysia and the world of affairs council. you talk about the need for peaceful resolution of disputes. i wondered if you could elaborate a bit about what stand referred to in the south china and the east china where the assertiveness is causing so much concern. >> we see that and i think we have a very principled position on all of this. first of all, people say we don't take sides in these disputes but it's not true, we actually do. when we take a side for freedom of navigation and peaceful resolution of these disputes. that's where we are going to stay. we don't always have a direct intermed
they come back to their home district. how would you bring back dollars to new jersey in this environment and what would you identify as the most pressing new jersey project in need of federal funding? kyrillos: well unfortunately, these guys abuse the earmark process. they were excessive. and of course now we are at a point with their debt problem that we can't afford them. so i'm going to fight tooth and nail for every project that can come back home within the confines of formulae and other plans that exist for people to compete for. and i'm going to be very active and visible all around the state. we lost a big army bait in monmouth county. they didn't just employ people in monmouth county but people all around new jersey. senator i'm not sure where you were in that fight. i didn't see it. and of course we lost those jobs and we lost that base and the move to aberdeen maryland at a sky-high price tag to the american taxpayer. and so the existing army base, the megabass that is what we have to work for. >> moderator: thank you sir. senator menendez? menendez: can i go a little over? >>
. and an incredible, beautiful environment and also in an interesting election season to say the least. our first award for the evening -- before we get to that, i have to start it was a joke. can i start out with a joke? joe biden. sorry, that's the joke. [applause] followed by another joke, nancy pelosi. sorry. as an ardent practicing catholic. sorry. i was told by friends of "saturday night live" but i do the best nancy pelosi impersonation, but i'm still waiting for that bet they are going to me and "saturday night live." he seemed to avoid goofy liberal spirits on the republicans they do over there. our first award to the evening is the obama got some award. i can't believe i'm actually saying that. troubling. for about 25 years come in the media research center has been documenting every idiocy we know from the media as they celebrate one liberal hero after another. and let me just say, the people we are going to be talking about, they love politicians who want to raise your taxes, right? they love politicians who want to expand the nanny state and are going to check all the boxes here. the
a good thing going for 70 years in that part of the world. it's in that environment in which these tremendous economic transformations of one asian state after another can take place. we welcome that. we think that's a good thing. we want to keep going with that. that's what it's all about. so, you know, on both of those questions, stanley, all i can say is, watch. >> okay. one more question. how about in the back there, the rand hazed. -- hand raised. i'm trying to be equal opportunity per section to have audience here. >> thank you. i'm tom with the american-asian society and the affairs council. you talk about the need for peaceful resolution of disputes. i wonder if you could elaborate a bit about what stan roth referred to in the south china and east china seas where china's assertiveness is causing so much concern? >> sure. well, we see that, and i think we have a very principled position on all of this. you know, first of all, people say we don't take sides in these disputes, but that's not true. we actually do take a side. we take a side for freedom of navigation and
. it has been 1400 days since he has been in an environment where he got punched in the mouth and he got punched in the mouth tonight and i think -- something to be said for being presidential. there is also something to be said for descending into the fray and really figuring out how to go after your opponent. i don't think he should have gone to the hoover dam on monday. >> glen, we appreciate it. only a minute left in the program. we appreciate you for joining us. look forward to reading your analysis. punch you in the mouth. people don't understand, you new yorkers, we hire you. we try to get you guys to speak in calm tones, not offend our audiences but the guy shows up with the ha and next thing you know he is a wild man. fascinating night. lots of coverage we'll have in the morning. are we going to do fact check pieces? >> eight reporters are picking through all the points of debate. five trillion, solyndra stuff. dodd-frank, romney sort of saying he thinks dodd-frank is too tough on banks or something. we'll try to call him out on something. >> do we know off the top of our heads
of it is this 50.1% attitude. i think the other thing, governor romney i think grew up in a privileged environment. just like i want to get my daughter all i can come his father wanted to do the same take. mccain was somewhat isolated with the schools and elite i think sort of thinking along the way. and i think he also, his parents instilled upon him that because of those privileges he had responsibility. and that is what you might say class had responsibility to give back and to be a leader later. so i think he wants to be president because he wants to make good decisions. he wants to, with circumstance brought before him as ambassador said, he wants to reorganize the government so it's a vision. but unlike bill clinton who could tell you 137 things he wanted to get done, i do think governor romney can tell you what he wants to do. he just wants to be a good president. and because of that, you know, if he is weaving around out there, the campaign doesn't have a balance. you saw as governor he was a very progressive governor, and in massachusetts until he started looking presidentially and then h
clear that the president actually headed towards creating an environment where on this map is a significant advantage. >> governor christie promised speedy this is right, met ron is going to be so exceptional tomorrow there'll be a seismic shift. >> let's watch. talk about it next week in class. >> the crossroads different venues also engage in more localized regions, states, congressional and senate. a bit about how you choose your priorities since you have a broader scope than is. >> that's a good question. the goal of american crossroads is to be president obama into electing a president but were also heavily invested in senate and house races. a lot of the other super pacs or not. we are focused on all of the senate races are where you see a lot more of the advertising earlier on just because senate races, people figure, pay more attention earlier. will also engage in number of house races problems later. >> look, that's the other thing. crossroads place an outsized role in the senate races, and don't think that these two are not wind. i'm not suggesting it nefarious, b
